@Greg: Yes it's a relief indeed but legal matters does not erase from the file itself. So there are possibilities of these decisions could come up again.

Significant Advantages With Gas-Assist Molding

Glad to hear the legal issues are resolved.  There are very significant technology and cost advantages with gas-assist molding and many plastic designers will welcome this news.  Larger dimensions can be economically molded because the gas-assist process creates an intentional hollow area inside the part.  In many cases, these bigger cross sections also add additional strength to the part (but not the weight since the area is hollow).  As the article stated, I expect the use of this technology to rapidly grow.
